DETROIT (AP) - Three Education Achievement Authority schools in Detroit will participate in a computer skills program aimed at preparing students for future career success.

Officials say more than 100 students will write computer code Wednesday onto STEM Lab devices during The Hour of Code events at Denby, Mumford and Pershing high schools.

Students will create and publish mobile games to play later.

The Hour of Code is organized by the Detroit Innovative Technology Collaborative and sponsored by Code.org, a nonprofit that increases participation by women and students of color within computer science industries.

A kickoff begins at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Denby. The Hour of Code will be held at 1 p.m. at Pershing and at 2 p.m. at Mumford.

The Education Achievement Authority is Michigan’s turnaround district for low-performing public schools.
